'So this is Christmas and what have you done/ Another year over . . .'

It's Christmas time! Time to celebrate, look back on the year that was and relax  . . . - and yes, the John Lennon reference is deliberate!  We are very lucky to have a childhood and teenage friend of the young Beatle as our guest speaker. Michael A. Hill, author of John Lennon: The Boy Who Became a Legend, will be sharing his memories of one of the great creative talents of the twentieth century - and you will have time for Q&A and the opportunity to pick up a copy of his book on the night. Michael’s book will be available to buy for $30 on the night.

You will also have an opportunity to take home a nice present!  We are having an open 'Not-so-secret Santa' (Kris Kringle) game. Bring a book (unwrapped) of approximately $20-$25 rrp, and give it to one of Santa's elves when you arrive. All those who bring a present will be able to choose from under the tree later in the evening (heck, you can even choose the one you brought yourself!).  

There will be crackers and games and we'll announce the results of our member survey for book of the year, and client of the year. 

Dr Renée Otmar will fill give us the inside low-down on the conference, and of course there'll be antipasto and grazing platters, canapes and drink card, tea/coffee and desserts.  And all for just $42 for members and affiliates and $45 for non-members. 

We'll also have a donation box for the Smith Family, who requests that toys or books be unwrapped, should you wish to add something to that. New, rather than well loved, please. Donations are purely voluntary.

This is the last event for 2018 and we hope you will be there to raise your glasses to what has been an activity-packed 2018 and to bring on 2019 as a year of more activities, challenges and professional hills to climb (we have climbed mountains, haven't we?)  and conquer, while having fun and working smarter and wiser (we can do that concurrently, can't we?).
